STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) — A Stamford attorney has voluntarily surrendered his law license after 42 years of practice following accusations that he stole just short of $60,000 from the estates of a mother and her son.
The Stamford Advocate reports 68-year-old Morris Glucksman pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of first-degree larceny and second-degree forgery.
Glucksman is accused of stealing $58,000 from the Connecticut mother and son shortly after they died three months apart roughly five years ago. The family, who wasn’t identified, reported Glucksman’s alleged mishandling of the estates to police in November.
The Office of the Chief Disciplinary Counsel recommended that Glucksman surrenders his law license after determining that he posed a “threat of irreparable harm to current and prospective clients.”
Glucksman is due back in court on June 20.
